“I’m scared we have unleashed monsters” Man recounts his horrible encounter with Amotekun operatives in Ibadan

60


A photographer has narrated the horrible encounter he had with Amotekun operatives in Ibadan.

 

He said he was on his way from church at 12 noon on Dec 22 when he saw people running. He later discovered they were running from Amotekun, the south western security outfit.

 

He explained that since he committed no crime, he continued driving and he saw them shoot at a man who went to ease himself in a bush. Fortunately, they missed.

 

He explained that his face registered his displeasure at what they had done so one of them told him to drive off. He said he responded that he was doing that but the road was too bad to allow him drive at a faster pace.

 

This angered the Amotekun operatives and they asked him to alight from his car. He said they were aggressive and one of them threatened to blow his head off.

 

He said they searched his trunk and saw his photography gadgets. He had to explain what he does for a living to them.

 

He added that they started cursing him and said “Ogun will kill his mum.”

 

He concluded by asking why the security outfit should be allowed such power to intimidate citizens without control.

 

He wrote: “I’m scared we have unleashed monsters who will do more harm than good if we don’t curb these excesses! Funny thing is I support the force but now, I’m not so sure anymore!”

 

He tagged the Oyo state government and the governor to his thread.
